Great leaders inspire others with their concern for the common good. It's an ideal central to our leadership studies course.

Leadership Studies

Leaders are visionaries, communicators, goal setters and motivators. More than that, though, truly great leaders possess an abiding concern for the greater good.

Studying leadership entails more than the mere scrutiny of great leaders and leadership theories. Ethics, gender, interpersonal and international dynamics, and organizational behavior all have implications for both leaders and followers. They will affect you throughout your career.

At St. Norbert College, completion of six courses from the leadership studies curriculum, including a capstone leadership project, earns you a minor in the field.
